I'm having a bit of trouble tracking down an easy answer to this so thought I would post it here. Maybe the admins can make it a sticky topic?

As developers what is the best format to receive a sponsor's splash screen in?

In my research I first assumed that it would be flash (SWF/SWC) but given the rise of HTML5/Unity games for multi platform distribution, does this remain true?

OR should it be something like mp4?

If you plan to sponsor  formats other than Flash then yes, you need more than just SWF which only works for Flash. mp4 is one possibility, though much simpler is a static image, i.e. a PNG, if you don’t need animation. That will work everywhere and be much more lightweight.

Thanks for the response John. I figured Mp4 would be best and went with that. I decided to also ask for the After Effects file in case I decided to produce a SWF from it.
